The Art of Not Finishing Things

I'm reading the new biography of Leonardo DaVinci by Walter Isaacson. Fascinating! I'm learning about the Renaissance, and Italian politics in the 1400s, and the interesting ways art impacted warfare and power. It was a perfect environment for a man like Leonardo. I've discovered that he was driven by curiosity! He wanted to know how [...]

Are You Lying About The Money?

Happy Holidays! For many, this time of year is a mixed bag of emotions.  Yes, it's wonderful to spend quality time with friends and family.  Yet, there is a lot of pressure, too.  Making sure the gifts and the food and the decorations are just right.  Trying to uphold traditions, even those [...]

How to Find Great Techs

"I can't find great techs." That's the #1 problem contractors share with me, over the phone and on the seminar trail. A few contractors have solved this problem. Jim and Jason Criniti have. My best friend and mentor, Al Levi, introduced me to Jim Criniti a few years back. Al was working [...]

The Frankenstein Factor

You can get too many voices in your head. You can get overwhelmed trying to stitch together multiple business strategies. I consider myself a life-long learner.  Every day, I aim to add to my experience and understanding. However, there is a tipping point where too many opinions just get confusing. How do you choose a [...]

How Much is Enough?

How much is enough? How much property? House? Money? That question got my attention as I was running today. I've managed to expand my possessions over the years.  We live on 80 acres, with multiple buildings and vehicles.  It's beautiful and I love my life!  Still, as I look forward and ask [...]

How to Get What You Want as an Employee

I got my first job at 14.  I’ve had about 50 jobs since.  I got fired a few times.  Each experience taught me valuable lessons and skills.  At heart, I am still that trouble-making, fence-testing employee.  Much of my business advice comes from that perspective.  Most of the time I give advice to [...]

Save It For The Meeting

Have you ever walked into your office and been jumped by the bookkeeper? "What's this check for?  I can't read your writing.  And Jimmy hasn't filled out his time card all week."  When you aren't in financial manager mode, these questions can feel like an ambush. Have you ever interrupted your bookkeeper with [...]

Projects UN-Complicated: Getting Stuff Done

My latest, favorite topic is getting stuff DONE. Leadership involves inspiration, information and implementation. Inspiration comes from asking and answering the big questions: What do I want? Why? It involves thought and journaling and meditation. Information, well, that's usually available isn't it?  Leadership involves shifting through information and deciding which voices to heed and [...]

The Power of Gratitude

I love discovering someone's story. What are their interests, beliefs and their why? What are their habits and rituals? Was there a moment that changed everything and triggered a powerful, positive shift? Recently, an uber-successful businessman told me his story. He told me about being on top, crashing to the bottom, and rebuilding even better. A [...]

Holidays UN-complicated…Less is More

How about if you just...don't. You don't go to the party. You don't send the greetings cards. You don't carry on a tradition. What if, when it feels like a chore, you just...don't. What if, instead, you smiled a little more? What if you gave a few compliments? What if you found lots of [...]
